Random makeup talk

April 10, 2008

When I shop for makeup, I don’t usually go for brands like Dior, Chanel or Givenchy because they are fashion houses and cosmetics are not really their strength. But after realizing that both of my favourite Fall 08′ runway makeup looks are by products from Chanel beauty, I guess I am proven wrong.

Alberta Ferretti Fall 08′
Makeup artist: Peter Phillips, using Chanel beauty products

Practically every model looked like angels in that show. The eyelining is heavy but by toning the rest of the makeup down (pale lips, flawless skin), the look is surprisingly soft. According to Phillips, it is a ‘watered-down sixties look’ and ‘more rock ‘n’ roll than Brigitte Bardot’. This is the kind of look that goes well with the fall season.

Like the look for Spring/summer 07′, the golden eyeshadow is simply genius. Not only does it make the models look fresh, it also adds a touch of glamour and sophistication. I like the shade a lot, it’s not too heavy or dramatic but still has right amount of shimmer. You can totally rock it without adding on any eyeliner or mascara! I would love to wear this look to events, parties or whenever I feel like dressing casual-chic.

    It helps that they all have beautiful face and skin.

    Ugly with pretty make-up = still ugly. 🙂

    neh, i think make up done well does help the less endowed look much better. anyway. i loveeeee alberta ferreti’s look. very 60’s, very strong, subtly smouldering, sexy! but the gold eyeshadow in chanel…. i just have something against applying yellow shades on the face!

    I don’t think gold and yellows look nice on asian skin. But it is comforting to note that the models in the Chanel Fall ’08 pic don’t have deep-set eyes. Its easier to imagine how this look would transfer onto a typical Asian face. like mine :/

    Chanel has always had the best lip glosses. No doubt.
